That was a common conversion. They use to sell those kits in adds in the back of all the hot rod magazines in the very early 80's. I have seen a few of them. Not sure what they were thinking.

That's really cool. It looks like an old Indianapolis 500 roadster from the late 40's or early 50's. It'd really be neat with a four cylinder Offy or an eight cylinder Novi in it. Those old Novi's sure were loud, you could hear them all the way around the speedway.

Yeah, it kind of resembles some of the old Formula 1 cars from the fifties. Did it have a 12 cylinder motor. Some of those motors over there had bunches of cylinders but not much CID. Where's the guy from England? If it's has a Jag connection, Stretch should know all about it. Right?

I thought it might have a Jag V-12 or one of the big six's that they used in the E-Type.

That is a sweet car. Shame the modern Indy cars can't have the same kind of personality.
